Description

Sally's Sanctuary of Hope & Healing is proud to present a full day of learning about hope and healing after loss. Discover what other cultures experience in the dying, death, grief and mourning process. Learn the healing power of music! Have fun joining a drumming circle and be carried away by the rhythm.

Morning speakers are: Nicole Basiaco, NP., GMHOT, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. Sally Wilson, RN., BA, Grief Counselor, GMHOT, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. Then, enjoy your afternoon with: Okello Kelo Sam, Founder Hope North Uganda.

Ms. Basiaco and Ms. Wilson work at the Chatham-Kent Alliance in the Geriatric Mental Health Outreach Team. Ms. Basiaco has many years of primary practice expertise. She has been involved with the palliative care team in Chatham. Ms. Basiaco has been a speaker at many conferences and will speak about ageism and the effects ageism has on the elderly population.

Ms. Wilson is currently obtaining a Master's of Science degree in Thanatology through Marian University in Wisconsin. She holds a Certificate in Death and Grief Studies in association with Colorado University and is a member of The Association of Death Education and Counseling. She has several years experience at providing grief counselling in her community and she will expore how other cultures experience dying, death, grief, and mourning and then examine how Western cultures compare.

Okello Kelo Sam is a former child soldier abductee and is the Founder of Hope North Uganda, Masindi, Uganda. Sam is an actor, musician, comedian, and entertainer and is very well known in Uganda. As one of the tens of thousands of young Ugandans who have been abducted and forced to become child soldiers, Sam experienced death and loss first-hand. Believing that every child deserves a bright future, he established a school to facilitate the healing of Acholi youth. Hope North is “a school, a home, and a promise” where thousands of orphans, former child soldiers, and young victims of Uganda’s civil war have achieved peace and success through education, inspiration, music, and personal development. Sam will speak about the power of "doing", and of "community", in dealing with death, and healing and how music has an important role in healing. Sam will lead us in a drumming circle.

All proceeds will be donated to Hope North in Uganda, founded by Okello Kelo Sam.
